Welcome to musical comedy heaven! Featuring one of the most iconic scores of all time by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill, a revised book from Harvey Fierstein based on the original classic by Isobel Lennart, tap choreography by Ayodele Casel, choreography by Ellenore Scott, and direction from Michael Mayer, this love letter to the theatre has the whole shebang!
The sensational cast, starring Drama Desk Award® nominee Lea Michele as Fanny Brice, Tony Award® nominee Ramin Karimloo, Jeff Award winner Jared Grimes, and Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh, dazzles with the songs “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” “I’m the Greatest Star,” and “People.” This bittersweet comedy is the story of the indomitable Fanny Brice, a girl from the Lower East Side who dreamed of a life on the stage. Everyone told her she’d never be a star, but then something funny happened—she became one of the most beloved performers in history, shining brighter than the brightest lights of Broadway.
The original Funny Girl Broadway production, featuring a book by Isobel Stennart, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Bob Merrill, premiered in 1964 to critical acclaim. Within four years, a film adaptation came out that made a household name — and an Academy Award winner — out of Barbra Streisand.
The real-life Fanny Brice and her character are Jewish, so it’s custom for a Jewish actress to play the role. When the original Broadway production was in development, Carol Burnett was offered the role of Fanny but turned it down, telling the producers to hire a Jewish actress. Composer Jule Styne thought of Streisand after seeing her on Broadway in I Can Get It For You Wholesale, and the rest is history! Streisand starred opposite Sydney Chaplin as Nick on stage and opposite Omar Sharif on screen.
Both iterations of the show have cemented their legacy in performing arts history: Funny Girl's original Broadway cast recording is in the Grammy Hall of Fame, and the Funny Girl movie is in the National Film Registry as a culturally significant movie.
The 2022 Funny Girl Broadway revival features a revised book based on Stennart’s original, penned by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. A 2015 London revival of Funny Girl was the first to use his book. Choreography is by Ellenore Scott and tap choreography is by Ayodele Casel, and Tony Award winner Michael Mayer directs.
